Wedding Sand Ceremonies

The sand ceremony comes from a Native American tradition, but is perfect for a beach our outdoor wedding in Australia.

This ceremony requires three small vials or vases, two for each of you to pour the sand from, and one larger vase to hold the combined sand.  The combined vase of coloured sand symbolises the united lives of the bride and groom and their families.

After the celebrant explains the symbolism of the tradition, the bride and groom pour the two containers of sand into the third container simultaneously. You may wish to leave a small amount of sand in each vial to symbolise that, although you are now joined as one, you are still free to express your own individuality.  The celebrant can explain:

“Your relationship is symbolised through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand; one, representing you, [name] and the other representing you, [name].  As you each hold your sand, the separate containers of sand represent your lives to this moment - individual and unique. As you now combine your sand together, your lives also join together as one.”

If you are including children in the ceremony, obtain several extra vials with different coloured sand for each child.  The celebrant can offer some additional words such as:  “Today you make a life-long commitment to share the rest of your lives with each other and your children. Your new family relationship is symbolised through the pouring of these individual containers of sand into one vase.”

The combined sand makes a wonderful wedding keepsake for the bride and groom and a constant reminder of their promises on their wedding day.  Pink Frosting has sand ceremony kits available, that can be personalised to reflect your names and the date of your wedding, as well as coloured sand for wedding ceremonies as well as decorating your wedding reception.
